Former Strikeforce Middleweight Title Challenger Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller has proven to be the ultimate beneficiary of Chael Sonnen’s prolonged suspension with Dana White confirming that he will feature alongside British star Michael Bisping as the coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 14. It is expected that Miller’s planned fight against Aaron Simpson at UFC 132 will be cancelled.
As host of MTV’s Bully Beatdown Miller is no stranger to reality television and the UFC and Spike must be hoping for fireworks when the always colorful American competes against the notoriously loudmouth Brit. Indeed both fighters have had been involved in their fair share of controversy with Mayhem being banished from Showtime after instigating a post-fight brawl with the Cesar Gracie camp following Jake Shields vs. Dan Henderson while Michael Bisping was recently heavily fined by the UFC for his behavior during and after a match against Jorge Rivera at UFC 127.
With such combustible characters as coaches and the promise of all-action fights featuring for the first time ever on TUF bantamweights and featherweights this promises to be the most explosive season of The Ultimate Fighter yet.
